Lean practice applies to all work, everyone, every day, all day.
Though expertise gained through experience and events is a part of lean approaches to improvement and learning, lean practice is neither an expert nor an event model. Lean isn't lean if it doesn't involve everyone, every day, all day.
So I find it useful to ask myself, has everyone in my group practiced lean today? Have I?
